Spelling difference of parents' name in passport and birth certificate


Recommended Posts

My wife will be filing for her EAD. She is required to fill her parents' name in the form I-765. I have a query regarding this.

There is a difference in the spelling of her parents' name in her birth certificate and passport.

Mother's name:

Name in Birth Certificate: Shanta Chakrabarty

Name in Passport: Santa Chakraborty

I would like to know what would be more appropriate- to use the spelling as mentioned in the birth certificate or the passport.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

PS: We already have an affidavit which says that the names are one and the same and it is just a variation in spelling.
